The Canadian Film Forum kicks off in the new year as filmmaker and former Cinema Studies Institute Screenwriter in Residence, Semi Chellas and Cinema Studies alum-actor Sarah Gadon present American Woman, adapted for the screen, by Chellas, from Susan Choi’s Pulitzer-shortlisted novel.

Inspired by the headline-dominating kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst in 1974, this atmospheric drama is a fictionalized re-imagining of her time in hiding, from the perspective of Jenny, a political activist assigned to take care of her.
